Substitute Teacher Artist

$1300, collaborative, acrylic and mixed media on canvas, 30" x 36", 2007 :: As a substitute teacher working with the San Francisco Unified School District (request #14927), I often take the opportunity to engage the students in some collaborative art projects. :: This painting represents several classes at Galileo Academy for Art and Technology working on some free form exquisite corpse style stories and drawings. Many of the students' writings and drawings have been collaged into this painting.

Classroom at Enola D. Maxwell Middle School

SOLD, acrylic on canvas, 3.5' x 5', 2004 :: I was brought on as a substitute at Enola D. Maxwell Middle School in Portrero Hill for 6 weeks. I'd like to say the kids learned something during that time, but really, I'm just happy no one got hurt. Details of this painting can be found on TheArtDontStop.org HERE.

Trying to Think in High School

SOLD, acrylic and collage on canvas, 20" x 24", 2006 How our education system works.

The Ultimate Effective Classroom

SOLD, collaborative, mixed media on canvas, 30" x 36", 2007 details can be viewed here. Teachers, donors, staff and other members of the RISE (Resources for Indispensable Schools and Educators) family at the "Giving Credit Where Credit is Due" celebration of teachers made small drawings or wrote about their vision of the ultimate effective classroom. These drawings and ideas were all collaged onto the canvas and incorporated into this painting of a fantasy classroom scene. Some contributions were symbolic and others practical. People imagined laptops for students, an art station, a bio-garden, a teacher nap area, and of course, "lot's n' lot's of LOVE." See The Art Dont Stop on Facebook

Underpass

SOLD, acrylic on canvas, 3' x 3.5' This is based on the 280 highway overpass at Silver near Thurgood Marshall Academic High School in San Francisco. I was thinking about how students learn so much more from their environment than in the classroom. See The Art Dont Stop on Facebook

Circus Contraption Amazes at CELLspace

SOLD, acrylic on canvas, 3' x 3.5' Contact me to inquire about licensing this image. Circus Contraption performs the "Grand American Traveling Dime Museum" at CELLspace in August of 2004. The music of this one-ring circus is fantastic (the troupe built around the band), the stunts are dupefying, and the humor is ripe. And they're all wonderful people.
